    I wore a leather miniskirt and turtleneck or a long Indian patterned skirt to go to clubs and parties.

    I loved the mini skirt, but one of my favorite special outfits was a dress in a wild psychedelic print! There was no missing me on the street – in fact, the bold colors were probably blinding! I did a bit of modeling work while in London and this photo with me in “the dress” was from a magazine article.

    I remember mini skirts were more modest’ than dresses. When you wore the latter you had to be careful how you sat, not so wise to cross your legs. And high heels were so passe. At least mini skirts than went with flat shoes, still colourful and fashionable. I still have the same attitude to heels now – uncomfortable and crippling.
    And we mustn’t forget the obligatory make-up – black eyeliner and lashes, and white lips. And for social occasions false eyelashes. A friend was trying her on while sitting on her bed, dropped one and a spider rushed out and ‘captured’ it.
    Also not to forget the older generation. My dad was delighted with his drip-dry shirts which meant less ironing for my mother.

    My favourite outfit was most definitely a very short dress and a white pvc raincoat with knee length white pvc boots.
    I was very fortunate because working for M&S in the head office I had lots of my clothes given to me. They were samples from the buying department and the buyers liked to see us wearing their merchandise. One important thing was we were pulled up if we had a ladder in our tights and immediately sent to the office to get a new pair (no charge). Those were the days. We had to have our cardigans either on or off, not round our shoulders and our dress length was scrutiniesed by the staff manageress. It gave us a good grounding, we worked hard but the perks were fantastic.
